Love this so much. Only complaint is that it fades out fast and after the 2nd time using it the spray broke.
I haven't compared this scent to aventus yet. But on its own the fragrance smells good.
The fragrance itself seems well made. It's not one dimensional and has a nice development through the dry down. Sillage is balanced; it's neither overpowering nor weak. It projects well enough without being rude. Longevity is not noticeably great, nor is it bad. Aventus itself doesn't have great longevity. Ineffable is comparable. The bottle design and packaging are very nicely done. For me, the lack of love comes from the structure of the scent profile itself. It opens with a big citrusy blast. It's warm rather than crisp, which isn't always bad, but in this case the oily lemon smell never allows the other elements their time on stage. Ineffable's pineapple is present, but not given the preeminence Creed's Aventus gives it. The French apple is undetectable. The opening is all bergamot and black currant. The middle notes again, are dominated by one scent that overpowers the rest. In this case it's the rose. It gives just enough room to catch a bit of Jasmine. The supposed birch and patchouli never really show up. Ineffable is saved by its dry down. It settles in to a very pleasant accord with a very clear oakmoss and amber warmth. The vanilla and musk are faint, but present. Unfortunately, the longevity has about run out by the time the lovely basenotes emerge. One is tempted to reapply and hope for more, but waiting through the hours of lemon furniture polish smell just isn't worth if for such a short-lived finale. The fragrance evokes a library in a forest, but all of the shelves have been so thoroughly coated in lemon wax you can hardly enjoy the overall setting.
Great will but it again....
